Time to choose.

It’s time Australia. Time to think about how your power is produced. At the moment we burn fossil fuels but that’s not sustainable. Most people would agree renewable energy sources are the way to go.

Do we want to pay the man whatever he says? What about cutting out the middle man and paying no power bills ever!

There is a whole new system available, there are no power bills to pay and all energy is totally renewable. Cheaper than paying for grid connected power, stand alone power is the way to go.

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don't forget Sungel batteries!

Take charge! Don’t wait for the government or someone else to sort it for you. You can get off the grid today! There are plenty of companies to install stand alone power such as Enviroshop 1300 30 58 33 or Rainbow Power Company 02 6689 1430 look them up online. The cost $30,000 for an average 3 bedroom home. No matter what you have heard in terms of cost I got this figure from the companies doing the work.

Now you know how to get off-grid power use that knowledge, please.

Go Green Australia!

Australia the extremely lucky country.

Australia is certainly the lucky country. We can have a system whereby we produce the power we use. No more paying a company for the use of our power. No more power bills!

In everyone’s attempt at renewable energy the best they can come up with is, we pay whatever they tell us to. Providing renewable power for a cost.

Stand alone power cuts out the middle man. You produce the power you use via solar panels, solar hot water, maybe a small wind turbine and definitely a bank of batteries. The best batteries you can get for this application are sungel, Aussie made! Thanks C.S.I.R.O. and Battery Energy!

In the northern hemisphere the solution is different, due to the amount of sunlight hours per day. For example in the U.S.A. maximum sunlight hours per day in the summer is 10 hours. In Australia minimum sunlight hours per day in the winter is 10 hoursWe have more sun! Our sunlight hours per day and our sungel batteries, these are what make stand alone power possible.

Some people in Australia are using a bit of DIY to get off the power grid others are employing a company to install it. Those that are unaware of the existence of stand alone power are still on the power grid. When stand alone power is common knowledge everything will change. We don’t have to wait for the government or big business to make a move, they can watch us make a change.

To find a company to install a stand alone power system look online. (stand alone power) Make sure that’s an Aussie company! Too easy. If you want to talk to an expert on the subject I suggest one of these guys: Enviroshop………1300 30 58 33  Rainbow Power Company………02 6689 1430  Off-grid Energy Australia……..1300 334 839

Here comes crisis point

In Australia with just the advent of solar panels we will eventually hit crisis point. The fossil fuel burning power companies are supplying less power than they used to. They were proud to announce no interruption to supply through Melbourne’s hottest weather. They say solar panels have taken the edge off. I ask you what happens when more solar panels go up? These companies will supply even less. We need a back-up system. We need to get off the power grid.

Who can get you off the grid? The government? Big business? No. They are trying to work out ways of getting onto renewable energy whilst still having us pay for the use of our power. There is one person who can get you off the power grid, it’s YOU.

People all over Australia are slowly moving off the power grid. You can’t get off the power grid if you’ve never heard about stand alone power. Some people are using a bit of DIY, others employing a company to install their stand alone power system. With this system you will have solar panels, solar hot water, a bank of batteries, you may have a small wind turbine. You don’t have to pay the sun or wind for the use of your power. Using a company set-up would be around 30 thousand dollars for an average 3 bedroom home depending on your power usage. The only real cost to maintain this system is to replace the batteries when they ware out. If those batteries are sungel the best Aussie made you can get, they last 15 to 20 years! Thanks C.S.I.R.O. and Battery Energy. Nothing to pay for 15 to 20 years, what company can offer that, these ones. Enviroshop….1300 30 58 33 Rainbow Power Company…..02 6689 1430 Off-grid Energy Australia…..1300 334 839

Let me just say stand alone power becomes cheaper over time. Grid connected power is increasing in price and will continue to do so. Why are they increasing the price of gas, if not to prop up their profit margin. We are heading towards a crisis point.

If you own your own home or business think about stand alone power. Go Green Australia!
